Queen's University for training
there next fall. During this

Female Stage Crew* Takes Over
PHYLLIS GRANT, Joan Clark, Sally Panton and Margie Beale are here shown demonstrating their efficiency in
the new job they have taken over for the spring play.
Nevertheless none of the humor
of the play has been taken away
from this story of a slap-happy
family which has more individuality under its English roof than
could be found In a mud-hut full
of monkeys.
Elizabeth Locke takes the part ot
Alice Garth-Bander, the ruler of
the household, who imagines that
ah* gives the orders to both her
family and her husband, although
In reality she commands little mors
respect than a lance-jack in th*
Her husband, Malcolm, played by
Allan Ainsworth, is a meek little
fellow, but under his meekness, h*
hides an understanding heart
which he needs to attempt to figure out his rather eccentric family, and a faculty for disorganizing th* whole household.
Ronald H*al portrays Dudley,
th* younger son of th* family, th*
self-appointed critic of all and
sundry. Having reached his
twenty-first y*ar, he is under th*
impression that he has grown a
crust of Indifference which help*
him to maintain his belief that he
is an odious stinker.
Blair Baillle In the role of
Claud*, th* oldest of th* Garth-
Bandar brood, Is an affected, superior sort of English gentleman

landed gentry, whereas Gladys is
from sturdy farmer stock. Claude'i
mother is naturally opposed to such
an inglorious match, but true love
will always find a way, regardless
of mama's wishes.
Sandra Gordon steps right into
the character of Hankie, the
daughter. Frankie, to put lt into
the words of her family, is suffering from a slight case of "vestal
recklessness," and after much

husbands she finds the real thing

free from ghosts, pixies, and other

"George and Margaret" a shred

Over-Crowded Calendar
It is becoming more obvious as the year
goes on that the extra-curricular activities
of the student body are in great need of
more co-ordination.
The situation has been aggravated during this spring term because of the fact that
the 10-day lay-off in January forced the
postponement of many events which then
had to be. crowded into the latter part of the
The greatest sufferer from the lack of
intelligent planning of campus events has
been the war effort. Last fall when the
members of the War Aid set out to buy an
ambulance they drew up plans and publicity
for a large campaign, at the last moment the
Bond sale campaign came along and was
granted priority. The Bond sale was a big
success, but the Ambulance campaign, which
had been postponed for a week, flopped.
The Mile of Pennies drive Which ran
for a whole week stood to mak* or break
itself on the success of its noon; hour campaign*. Yet almost every noon hour found
some other feature running in competition
with the war drive and the result WW that
the Penny campaign received a rather dismal support and fell far short of its goal.
These cases are only two of many.
It is not actually the fault of any one
person or group of persons. However, it
does emphasize a situation which is sadly in
need of remedy. *
The War Effort has been moderately
successful. The students are willing to iup-
port it and they have given a go>d; 4»al toward it. Unfortunately it has not reft&ed
the heights that it should have attained. One
good reason is that the student body, although perfectly willing to do its share, has
its limits in interest and in ability to give.
When the students are constantly bar-
raged with requests to attend this dance
and that, to give to one cause and then immediately afterward to give to another,
when they find that their n6on hours are
filled by two or three different events and
probably a committee meeting or two, then
it is no wonder that some or all of these
events do not receive the support they deserve.
What is needed is a plan to reduce the
conflict of dates. What we suggest, is that
a priority be given, to war effort programs,
and that when they are scheduled, that no
other events be permitted. We suggest some
sort of definite objective be set up and that
those in charge keep hammering it at the
students all year. The past successes of the
War Aid Council were accomplished on this
principle, and there is no doubt of its value.
As to the other events it seems to be
obvious that there is too much extra-curricular activity on the campus in view of
the war conditions which give the students
much less time to spend on activities. In
our opinion it would be wise to try and reduce the social schedule, and perhaps some
of the activities to a more rational program.
If this were done we think that the remaining events would enjoy greater success
and thgt the whole scheme would work to
the advantage of all concerned.
The Mummery

How to Gain Complete Mastery of the
Upper Berth
•   AS A RESULT of my long and bouncey
association with the Upper Berth, I have
been able to evolve an experimental theory
which, in the opinion of many authorities,
throws a bombshell into the whole complicated science of dressing in an upper. This
work is to appear soon in the scientific brochure, "The Gallileo Guardian", and is entitled, "A Method, with Variations, for the
Horizontal Investiture of Habiliments in the
Sepulchrous Alterior, or 'Upper Berth'."
The highlight of this formidable attempt
to cut down the appalling loss of life in
upper berths is my work on the "High
Arch", or "London Britches Falling Down"
system of donning nether accoutrements, or
pants. I have discovered, (not without personal inconvenience in self-experimentation
which should, I think, merit the Nobel Prize,
or at least a good second-hand set of fibs),
I have discovered that there is one and one
only truly efficient method of putting on
trousers in an upper berth. I make this assertion with full knowledge of Dr. Elf Moon-
glow's classic work on this subject, ("You
Don't Know What You Are, Do You?", p.
358 inclusive). Dr. Moonglow's theory, which
has been accepted in the past merely because it was a classic and had won the Good
Housekeeping Seal of Approval, is, no doubt,
an admirable and thorough work in some
respects. But, in other respects, in the
humble opinion of this writer, it stinks.
For instance, Dr. Moonglow says,
"When applying trousers or britches in an
Upper Berth, it has been found wisest to
abandon the project before the gyrations
and shouted Invective involved have incited
a general panic." The italics are my own.
The dangling participle is Dr. Moonglow's,
and on him it looks good.
Now, although my esteemed colleague
has advised against attempting to put on
one's legwear in an upper berth, it must be
obvious to the close observer, like you or
me, that the rat makes no attempt whatever
at a solution of the problem, cold-bloodedly
abandoning the half-dressed victim in his
upper without his trousers on, and proceeding with an irrelevant, albeit learned, discussion of the Ethics of the Albino Monkey.
This is, I believe, defeatism at its worst, or,
as my associate, Dr. Randolph Dung, puts it-
"This is, I believe, defeatism at its worst"
(Dung, R. What Every Young Sleeping Car
Conductor Should Know, Sixty-ninth revision, p. 169-173). What Dr. Moonglow is
suggesting is that the passenger clamber
down from his upper in his shorts, waiving
propriety in favour of appeasement. This is,
of course, the sort of thing that breeds wars.
Now, my theory, the "High Arch", or
"London Britches Falling Down" method of
donning britches, is simple, yet dignified.
Naturally, I cannot go into the details of this
theory as they are still secret, but I can
offer an outline of the technique which I
have developed.-The essence of the procedure is nothing more than natural body
rhythm, and a good sense of timing. If you
can dance, there is no reason why you cannot get on your pants in an upper.
(N.B.: It must be noted at this juncture that
the theory here presented has been worked
out for male subjects only. My experiments
with females in uppers have, hereto, been
rendered somewhate inaccurate by the element of overcrowding, as well as by porters
who do not recognize the scientific approach
when they see it. I shall, however, repeat
my experiments indefinitely until I have
achieved complete success, and have convinced myself that, as far as dressing the
female in an upper berth is concerned, nothing has been left undone. To every man his
life work. End of N.B.)
To continue. The first movement of the
"High Arch" method is simply that of swinging the legs up from a lying position, until
they are at right ankles to the body. It will
be found easiest to do this when lying on the
back. There are some who claim to prefer
lying on the stomach, but in all my experiments the subject have tended to suffocate in
the pillow. This is undesirable.
Now, with the legs at right angles to the
body, the shorts, if any, and trousers are
dropped in turn over the feet. To do this,
it will be necessary to swing up the fore
part of tiie body, at the same time bringing
the feet down into an inverted crouch position. It is at this point that your wallet slips
out of your pants pocket, falling into the
corridor with a musical tinkle of loose
We'll wait for you while you try to get
somebody to hand it up to you.
Now that you have regained your wallet, minus a certain amount of loose change,
we can proceed with the procedure. The
trousers are now hanging, inverted, on your
legs. This is the point at which all the older
techniques leave off, and at which the real
beauty of the "High Arch" method is to be
seen to the full. The subject now straightens
out the legs, and slowly arches the body,
until it is resting on the heels and the top
of the head, with the stomack as the high
spot on the crescent. The trousers are then
seized by the hands and whisked over the
posterior in a twinkling. With time and
practice, it is possible to become sufficiently
adept at the "High Arch" to not only draw
on shorts and trousers, but also tuck in
shirt and sweater. The ability to do this is,
of course, the touch of the master, and the
beginner must not be overly ambitious at
first, or he will break his silly back.
I strongly recommend, also, that all
those who will be living a fuller life, thanks
to my "High Arch" theory, be on the alert
for my next work, "How to Drink Orange
Juice While Travelling Through Northern
Ontario. It's a killer.

• Opinion
• MUCH has been said by
many and various people
within the past few months
on the controversial subject
of classical versus modern
music. A survey of the views
embodied in the frequent
contributions to the "Letters
to the Editor" sections of
downtown newspapers has
revealed a rather significant
difference in the attitudes of
the supporters of the two
Those showing a preference for
"modern swing" display at the
same time a rather consistent attitude of tolerance towards classical music, a sort of "if they want
the long-hair stuff, let them have
it, don't bother us with it" point
of view. On the other hand, an
analysis of classicists' comments
and ideas seem to reveal an unfortunate attitude of petty intolerance in the majority of cases
for all kinds of modern music, and
the denial ot any righteous place
for any such music In the cultural
pattern of our society.
This attitude is ovioiuly a resultant of a narrow outlook, and a
total lack of ability to view the
question in its proper perspective.
No one can possibly observe the
widespread prevalence ot modem
music, especially on tne American continent without realizing
that this is the music of thc people.
It is the expression of the fast-
moving parade of events, the ups
and downs in the lives of the
mass of ordinary working people.
From the first introduction of
ragtime music, it has become a
pleasant release and n relaxing
let-down in the lives of the majority of the people. Raptime music became a necessity in World
War I„ an emotional release of
inestimable value. The musk produced was purely representative
of the war atmosphere, partly the
"to hell with it" canteen song3,
such as "Pack Up Your Troubles,"
and partly homesick songs such as
"Long, Long Trail." From the war
the world drifted Into a short depression, and the production of tho '
blues became common, such pieces I
as the "St. Louis Blues" gaining
great prominence.
Then came the boom years, with
modern music reflecting the hectic
money-making atmosphere with
such selections as the Black Bottom and the Charleston, etc. Then
came the crash, and the really
melancholy blues such a« "Solitude," and the like came into be-

Of Sin For Sake Of Art
• THESPIANS of the Green Room, that den of iniquity,
have run into a snag in the production of their Spring
opus, "George and Margaret." Claims have been made by
people who ought to know that the love scenes of said play
are not passionate enough.
Intrigued by these claims a frus-       --—-—-_________■___________.
trated UBYSSEY reporter dashed
over to watch an Informal rehearsal and record for posterity the
comments of fascinated onlookers.
As the Stage Room in the Brock,
where the rehearsal was being
held, was approached, a voice
could be heard, (later identified as
belonging to Anne DuMoulin, president of the Club) "A Uttle more
backbond there, please—aahhhhh,
that's fine!"
Entering the room, your reporter found a group of enthralled
spectators gathered around the two
lovers emoting in the centre ot
the floor, (purely for art's sake).
Peter Remnant, renowned art
critlo on the campus—well renowned, anyway, was overheard to
state, "... censored . . .'
Lucy Berton waa mumbling Incoherently in a corner, "Mary Ann,
Mary Ann, Mary Ann . . ." Lorraine Conway, prominent Junior,
shrieked, "Let me show th*ml
Please, let me show them!" and had
to be forcibly restrained from
carrying out her touching plea.
Don Newson, well-known Phi
Delt and Players' Clubber, remarked in a bored tone, "Could we have
a little mor* passion there please?
Rather amateurish, don't you
Andy Snaddon, editor-in-chief of
the UBYSSEY, stated in a flat'
voice, "When I was working on the
Calgary Herald . . ." Beside him
John Carson insisted frantically,
"The affair must go no farther) I
shall have you, up before the Discipline Committee! Indeed I shall!"
Joyce Orchard, who was with
Hugh Ritchie, did not seem to be
very Interested in what was going
on. Teenie Fleming, who was intensely interested in what was going on, suggested in a mild voice,
"Couldn't they look as if they (the
actors, not Joyce and Hugh,) were
enjoying themselves a little more?"
The last prominent campus figure
noticed was Rodney Morris, erstwhile president of our esteemed
Students' Council. He was jumping up and down, whistling shrilly
and clapping his hands ecstatically.
When last seen, he had collapsed,
gibbering, in a corner and had to
be carried out.
• SEVERAL new committees were set up at the
last Council meeting. The
chairman of the committees
will report at the next general meeting of the Students'
Council which will be held
within a few weeks.
Functions arc:
(1) Establishment of a system
of Trust Funds for various
organisations such as the Players'
Club and the Musical Society. This

Basketball Finals Start Sat. vs. Shores
Game Starts At 9
At VAC Gym
• NEXT SATURDAY NIGHT, at 9 o'clock in the VAC

Both UBC and Shores have already swept aside the initial opposition, namely, Lauries and R

Ruddy Rugger     Matheson Paces
* LAST FALL when we all gathered here for another term
of college life a number of rules and regulations were
set down in front of us all regarding those who wished to
partake in the sports program. One of these rules was that
no person was allowed to play for any outside team without
the consent of the university officials.
Whether some of our students have not yet learned to
read before they came here we do not know but one of the
first problems of this session was the case of four basketball
players who combined in a team to beat the two teams from
the Varsity they attended. These four players who were
playing for Calders' Olympics were brought before the Discipline Committee and duly punished. The story was given
much publicity that all other people with similar ideas would
profit by their example.
However, three boys have had to be called before the
Discipline Committee again for a similar offense. This time
the trouble involves the English Rugby team. It seems that
three fellows have been playing for an outside team when
they tare needed on the side of the Blue and Gold. These
three men are Bill Orr, Bob McDonnell, and Dougie Reid.
They have played for the Ex-Byng team in the Bell-Irving
and Tisdall Cup series. Where they have failed to abide by
the«rules and regulations is that they failed to get the proper
and necessary permission and have assigned themselves to
an outside team in an independent manner.
The said students have been warned about the affair
they have worked their way into but then maybe they can
not remember over a period of five months. Furthermore,
they had the example set up last fall in the basketball controversy to go by. Why they took the action they did will
not be definitely known until they explain themselves before
the Discipline Committee.
No one likes to see a number of students apprehended
in this manner but surely the idea of true sportsmanship
must be carried first in all affairs that this University takes
part in. The only way to ensure that this decent sportsmanship is carried out is to see that the students themselves
uphold it first.

Intra-mural schedule has been

The fioftbal! series will be well

The playing conditions have
been exceptionally good the past
few weeks and the program has
advanced remarkably well. With
the coming of spring the effort to
run the schedules off without n
hitch will become more and more
easy, hence a greater effort should
be expected to be put Into the
